LUCO: Mahler 5!
Combining Wagner and Mahler, two titans of the German repertoire has become a tradition for LUCO. It is always a BIG event, one that inspires awe, great skill, vision, endurance, fear, passion and a large venue to do justice to its gigantic sound. The prelude to Tristan und Isolde is one of the greatest tribute to absolute love with Its very opening harmonies changing the course of music forever. In his 5th symphony, Mahler is at the peak of his creative powers. It is the embodiment of the essence of the Mahlerian style. With its sticking opening funeral march and soaring Adagietto, it was completely unprecedented in its emotional and dramatic scope when it was premiered in 1904. Mahler who conducted the first performance stated: "Nobody understood it. I wish I could conduct the first performance fifty years after my death." Now exactly 100 years after his passing, we are thrilled to share with you this incomparable masterpiece which the world has not only come to understand but revere.
